Week 62 11-28-16 Centenario

Hey guys this week was really good!!

Our investigators are progressing and we are finding a ton of new people. We had a lesson with Irma. We went with Hno. Veles and we read the first chapter of the BOM. She then said that she was going to read until chapter 5!! We asked her how she felt about the BOM and she said that she had peace for the first time in months!! It was super awesome. The BOM really is the keystone to our church. I know that it is true and that it can help us with any problem that we have!!
A funny Friday we had Elder Hoffman with us because the ZL had to go to Neuquen for training. First thing that happened was after lunch we leave the pension and a huge storm hits us. It was super windy and raining a ton. It lasted about 30 minutes and it stop haha we then went to the bus stop to wait for the ZL. We were waiting and we see the bus come. when it was about 100 feet away there was a cloud of dust like a popped it got closer there was fire coming out of the bottom...the people on the bus were super calm and then everyone started yelling GET OFF GET OFF! hahah It was crazy!
Well I love you all!!

Week 61 11-22-16 Centenario

Man this week was great!

We worked a ton and found a ton of new people! In the mission we have a new goal to talk with everyone. I made the goal to work harder at this and I really saw the blessings this week! We also had some really good lessons. We got to teach Diego who has 17 years and we put a fecha for the 17th of December. We are working really hard with him so he can arrive this day.

My comp is also teaching me how to talk Guarani which is the native language of Paraguay. Ha upei. which is "whats up" haha 
It's starting to warm up but its still really nice. We are working hard and I'm loving it here!

Here is a photo of the baptismo of Jazmin in Spain.
"Yeah when she got to Spain she went to the church and she had the missionaries come to her house.  Jose her boyfriend was super happy. Yeah its still awesome to hear about her baptism. I got to teach her and see her change which is the coolest thing!
Dan taught her while she was in Argentina. She wanted to get baptized, but the mission president felt it would better if she were to be baptized at her home.

A member gave us cherries!! There is a ton of cherry trees here

Desserts hahah

Week 60 11-14-16 Centenario

So to start off this week! I found out that Jazmin that lives in Spain got baptized this week!
Jose showed us photos and its was super awesome.

We had a really good week. We started off a little slow and then on Wednesday we had to go to Cinco Saltos for interviews with Presdient and we also had a training. It was really good. After this we had a really good weekend. We found a lot of new people and had a lot of really good lessons.

Sunday we had a lesson with the Flia. Tapia and their friend Erma. It was a super good lesson and she has been looking for answers so we told her to read and pray about the BOM. We will see how everything works out!

We also had transfers, and I'm staying but Elder Garcia is going to Roca. My new comp is Elder Britiz from Paraguay. He has 6 months so he is still pretty new. I'm excited to be with him and we will see how he is.

Fabian to say goodbye to Elder Garcia threw water at him. I ended up throwing a bucket and him and Fabian and then Fabian threw a bucket of water on me. We ended up all being soaking wet hahah. 

Well i love you all!!

Week 59 11-7-16 Centenario

This week we got wind and heat!!

Its cooking up here now. It was about 30 degrees C so its about 90 F but we had a good week. We found more new investigators that are super awesome. We got to talk with Jorge a little. We didn't have a cita but we passed by and he said that he was reading and wants us to pass by to help him understand better!! We had other lessons that were good and our investigators just need to go to church now....

So Sunday i had been praying that we could have investigators in the church. We had been working hard and Saturday we went to Gabriel and put a fecha for the 20th but he then told us that he was going to go fishing....but he is still doing good. 

Sunday we went and the first 30 one came...I was bummed because the hermanas had an investigator(which was awesome) but I was a little bummed. Then a less active that we have been trying to talk with, showed up and had his 2 kids that want to get baptized!!! It was awesome!! I was super happy and know that the Lord blesses us when we are faithful. 

Today for Pday we did an asado. I cooked it and it turned out super good. Im going to cook you guys a super good asado when i get back!!!:)

Well i love you all and miss you tons!!!
